Not quite full but still big and beautiful

Waxing Gibbous

Saturday night is a full moon but it was still big and beautiful as seen from Panaewa Friday night (Oct 22).

Camera data: Canon 60D, 1/640 sec, f/6.3, 400ISO, 300mm 2.8L, 2x converter and a 1.4x converter making for a total of 840mm.

    Isn’t the 60d a cropped sensor camera? If so, at 1.6x that would be 960mm, right?

      Actually I forgot that I also had a 1.4x TC on to boot so it was an actual 840mm. Even with an APS-C crop sensor it’s still an 840mm lens but it has a field of view equivalent to a 1,344mm lens due to the 1.6x apparent magnification.

      Lucky it wasn’t windy or my medium weight Manfrotto tripod would have been too unsteady to shoot the image. Maybe I’ll have to look for some high foreground material for another photo tomorrow with the full moon.

    Waxing Gibbous: Gaining size and larger than a half-moon. Waning Gibbous: Losing size and larger than a half-moon.

    Is your wonderful photo mislabeled?
